My attempt at Chilean Sea Bass

edited October 2012 in EggHead Forum
Thanks for everyone's input earlier tonight:


I took bits and pieces from everyone and it all turned out fabulous.  The weak point was the asparagus, but I quickly made a second attempt that turned out much better.

I seasoned the sea bass with S&P and raging river.  The combination of the sautéed carrots and mushrooms along with the tomatoes, lemon slices, thyme, tarragon and parsley added so many different flavor notes to every bite.  Will definitely do again!! :)

    That looks incredibly good.  Sadly, I'm not cooking tonight other than the baba ganouch I made from the grilled eggplant from yesterday.  Now I'm hungry.

    Every time I hear or read Chilean sea bass I think of the Jim gaffigan hot pocket joke.
    Boom

    @Nolaegghead - "i've never eaten a hot pocket and thought . . . geez, i'm glad i ate that~! you'll never see hot pockets served at a nice restaurant. *in snooty waiter voice* today our specials are the chilean sea bass which is broiled or a hot pocket, which is prepared in a dirty microwave. *in patron's voice* is your hot pocket cold in the middle? WV - sir, its frozen . . . but it can also be served boiling, lava hot. PV - will it burn my mouth? WV - sir, it will destroy your mouth. everything will taste like rubber for months. hot pockets~!"
    Boom

    looks great!  I love seeing people try new things like this, it is why I frequent this place!

    Wow that looks amazing!  I got together with some neighbors once and they cooked it in an electric skilled with a light breading.  I gotta say- it was excellent.  This way looks even better!  Healthier too.  Did you cook the parchment on the egg raised direct as LS suggested?  




    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • I would like to know more about how to cook fish with parchment pouch.  Assume raised, direct...what else?

    @cazzy Glad it worked out for you. Looks great!

    You want to bake - so indirect.  You can use your oven too - not much smoke taste will permeate the paper.

    You can use parchment paper, foil, butchers paper, etc.  The idea is you put your food in the paper (you'll need some moisture - that can come from the food itself (fish, veggies) or you can add wine or some other liquid), and season it the way you want it.

    You fold the paper over and use a rolling technique to seal it completely.  There are videos on this technique.  The idea is to keep all the steam and moisture inside.  The paper will expand helping keep it in.

    Parchment is permeable to an extent and a little bit of the smoke flavour gets through. If you do mussels, clams, shrimp and mild fish you can taste it. Isn't mich but it is there.

    Little Steven and nolaegghead thanks. I would have never thought to seal in parchment on the egg. I only used it for pizza. Did use in oven.

    Thanks for sharing Cazzy.  My wife is on this new seafood kick and i'm trying my best to find things that don't tast like seafood  ;)  

    This looks great even if it didn't originally eat grass.

    When in doubt add more pepper.
  • Thanks a lot guys.  Sounds perfect for halibut since it can quickly dry out if left on a couple minutes too long...pretty trickey and not very forgiving.
  • Wow! I love how Chilean Sea Bass has a translucent appearance when raw. Excellent fish and nicely done!
  • cazzycazzy Posts: 8,336
    I actually cooked it raised direct nola...granted it was about 3 inches above the felt since I used my adj rig.  I pretty much only cook brisket, butt, ribs indirect.  I didn't list pizza because I haven't done one yet.

    @Mickey Give the pouch a whirl.  I've done Tilapia in a pouch a few times and it comes out great every time.  I didn't think about doing it with the sea bass until LS and Nola pointed it out.  I'm glad I did because the results were fabulous.
